Working under the leadership of Dr. Barbara Sherwood Lollar, Science at Massey aims to develop programs, round tables, seminars and linkages for the broad discussion of scientific issues, research, policies and challenges. Working closely and collaboratively with Junior Fellows in the interdisciplinary tradition of Massey College, Dr. Sherwood Lollar will help lead and encourage robust science-related events and discussions at Massey open to the entire Massey community.
Massey College is pleased to announce its second year for the Science at Massey program. With the participation and guidance of an informal group of Junior Fellows and Massey Alumni (and more always welcome to join in!) we will once again be offering a diverse program of science topics related to public policy and societal concerns. Early in the 2018 winter term an afternoon symposium will be held – entitled “Tea with Ursula” – to commemorate the lifelong passion our honoured colleague brought to discussion and debate on science and society at the College.
In addition we will be holding throughout the year, several more informal evenings where a featured after dinner speaker will entertain and promote interactive discussions following a dinner in hall with College members.
